As the Corona virus (COVID-19) continues to disrupt all aspects of our lives and with no clear end in sight, we humbly ask you to consider becoming a financial patron to keep Art Academia alive during these uncertain times.

As a small business, we have financial obligations that need to be met irrespective of how long we're unable to use our physical space and how many students we have. While we are providing online classes and people really seem to enjoy them, anything extra you can do to help our school would be greatly appreciated and not soon forgotten. Thank you for those who've donated already, for those who are continuing to stick with us through online classes, and for all who have supported Art Academia for over 15 years.

Our online art classes are in full swing. If you or your friends are interested in art, we’re accepting new students!

With the understandable anxiety and unpredictability surrounding the Corona virus (COVID-19), Art Academia has seen a meaningful number of students cancel their enrollment, and new student sign-ups have come to a complete stop. While we're moving to online classes to allow students to continue learning while at home - it may not be enough.

If you are able, please consider making a donation to keep our art school alive during these difficult and uncertain times. With your help, we'll be able to weather this difficult time and continue providing the gift of art instruction for the next generation of artists in our community for years to come. Thank you for those who've donated already, for those who are continuing to stick with us, and for all who have supported Art Academia for over 15 years.
